WHATEVER YOU DID UNTO ONE OF THE LEAST,
YOU DID UNTO ME
Mother Teresa at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC Thur, 3 Feb 94.
On the last day, Jesus will say to those on His right hand, “Come, enter the
Kingdom. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me
drink, I was sick and you visited me.” Then Jesus will turn to those on His left
hand and say, “Depart from me because I was hungry and you did not feed me, I
was thirsty and you did not give me to drink, I was sick and you did not visit
me.” These will ask Him, “When did we see You hungry, or thirsty or sick and did
not come to Your help?” And Jesus will answer them, “Whatever you neglected to
do unto one of these least of these, you neglected to do unto Me!”
I have trouble understanding those that lump all people using government assistance as lazy.
Do those that are disabled wish to be so?
Do children without health insurance wish to be sick with nowhere to turn?
Do children that are hungry deserve to be hungry when we have the means to feed them?
Do veterans not deserve their benefits they fought for?
Do people who cannot ask their parents for help and need student loans want to borrow money?
Do elderly people in nursing homes want to be there using Medicaid?
Do those that have Downs or other genetic differences ask to be born with them?
Mr. Romney did you ask for rich parents?
Mr. Romney did you ask for the ability to have all medical treatments available for your wife?
Mr. Romney did you ask to be a Mormon?
Mr. Romney you have forgotten the teachings of Jesus Christ. It is you that feels entitled to the good things you have been so richly blessed with. You have forgotten the ole variation by John Bradford – There but for the grace of God go I.
